THE STORY:

Can art change lives? For the 700 youth, adults, and seniors who come to the ZACC each month, the answer is yes.

Through our summer camps and afterschool programs, ZACC staff and volunteers have produced over 7,000 hours of youth art education this year, invaluable at a time when Missoula County Public Schools require only seven hours of art instruction per year. We have hosted more than 10 field trips from Missoula-area schools, and welcomed over 500 users to our public, do-it-yourself printshop and pottery studio. We have offered more than 100 workshops for adults, families, and seniors, and brought fun free art activities to 18 major Missoula events. The ZACC also produced  4 major art events, 7 free workshops in conjunction with the Missoula Festival of the Dead parade, 12 incredible Gallery Openings for emerging Missoula artists, and hosted over 30 all-ages music shows and 3 unique theatrical productions. The ZACC works every day to create a community in which art plays a central role in enriching lives, community engagement, and education.

 

In 2014, we added more community enrichment projects in our youth programs, such as a painted labyrinth in the Northside Park and made art for our local community gardens. We increased our contacts with seniors, introduced self-empowering music camps for girls, and added early childhood art programs in order to grow our impact even further. In 2015, we plan to increase our focus on fostering leadership in teens through music and art education projects. We are excited to announce that we have recently been awarded a full time VISTA to focus on healthy teen engagement in the arts. When community members come together to create, inspire, and connect with one another, our neighborhoods are stronger, our youth become empowered, and our community is healthier.

This giving season, we need your support more than ever. As our programs grow, our costs and annual fund goals increase. To help the ZACC continue to foster creative connections in our community and stay affordable and accessible to all, please consider donating to our annual fund. A gift of $50 will provide a child with weekly after school art education for one month. A gift of $100 allows us to provide a free workshop on the weekend. A gift of $250 stocks our supplies so Missoulians of all ages, incomes and abilities have access to create meaningful gifts for loved ones during our drop-in hours. A donation of $500 or more will provide the means to enhance our programming and expand outreach in the coming year. In whatever capacity you can contribute, you will be making a difference in the lives of the Missoulians we serve, and will help to keep our doors open and accessible to all.

It is through community belief in our mission, and generous contributions from individuals like you, that the ZACC can remain a leader fostering a vibrant creative culture for Missoula Valley residents.Thank you for thinking of the ZACC and those we serve as the year comes to an end.
